ption colorado c comments@captioncolorado.co m good morning to our viewers in the west. it is wednesday, september 25 2013. welcome to "cbs this morning." while you were sleeping senator ted cruz spent all night arguing to defund obamacare. we'll ask fellow republican bob corker if there's room for compromise. white house and iran walked a fine line at u.n. does america think it will go anywhere? gas prices fall to lowest level in months. why and how long will it last? >> we begin with your eye opener, your world in 90 seconds. >> intend to speak until i'm no longer able to stand.
7:01 am
>> cruz holds the senate floor in a protest of obamacare. >> occasionally yielding to questions. >> most would say china, but think again. the republicans support the bill passed. >> cruz even reading dr. seuss at his children's bedtime. >> i do notlike green eggs and ham. >> signs that diplomatic relationships may be beginning to sore both presidents. >> if we can solve the nuclear program, that can serve as a major step toward the relationship. >> three days of mourning in kenya. >> ashamed and defeated. >> a rising dealt toll after a earthquake in pakistan.
7:02 am
>> this is the back of an interview. >> the dog bit the owner on the bum. >> all that. >> i guess this wasn't meant to be. >> when i first met bonno. he walked into the naval office. >> must be easy to make fun of. >> which was a bigger deal in your house? >> and all that matters. >> obama was like really? on "cbs this morning." >> today they spent the day dealing with this ben affleck as batman thing. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning."
7:03 am
good morning norah. >> good morning to you charlie. we begin in washington as you you wake up in the west. lights on all light in the united states senate. ted cruz and colleagues have held the floor more than 19 hours. cruz wants the senate to follow the house and cut off fund for president barack obama 's health care law. >> the senate is expected to approve the bill to keep the government running without changing obamacare. nancy is following it on capitol hill. nancy, good morning to you. >> good morning charlie and norah. well this is now officially the fourth longest senate floor speech in history. it's still going. we believe senator cruz is going to try to speak until the senate holds the vote on funding the government in three hours or so. some republicans call hit courageous. others say it's pointless because their party does not have the votes to defund the president's health care law even though many would love to. >> the senator from texas. cruz took to the floor at 2:41
7:04 am
p.m. eastern time ditching cowboy foots in favor of comfortable blak sneakers. >> i intend to speak until i'm no longer able to stand. >> reporter: the 42-year-old news senator from texas is passionate about the health kaer law. he has detailed concerns. >> it is forcing so many americans into part time work. >> parts of obamacare haven't kicked in yet. >> a handful of republicans have joined cruz on the floor. >> i want to thank you for having the courage to stand here and raise the concerns that i'm hearing all over my state. >> many senate republicans do not support cruz's efforts and fear republicans will get blamed if the government doesn't get fund in time. >> my own view is it would be advantage of our colleagues in the house to shorten the process. >> in a cbs news new york times poll, more than three quarters
7:05 am
of americans, republicans and democrats say threatening the government shut down is not a way to negotiate. cruz insists it's democrats that are to blame. >> we should not shut down the government. i sincerely hope that senator reed and president barack obama do not choose to force a government shut down. simply to force obamacare on the american people. >> as the speech wound into the night, cruz did veer off topic once in a while. >> when your dad making pancakes, it's cool he can flip them and make them flip high in the air and catch them. >> at one point he read bedtime stories for his two daughters watching on cspan. >> i do not like green eggs and ham. i do not like them, sam i am. >> there's been debate over whether or not this is a true filibuster. snoir cruz can't truly hold up the vote expected to take place in hours. there's no debate about whether
7:06 am
this is the true triumph over the will of the bladder. if he wants to take first place in the longest speech of all time, he'd have to speak until noon pacific time which will be difficult since the vote will take place. >> nancy, thank you. at the united nation president barack obama made the case to reboot with iran. the iranian president rouhani echo had the law for diplomacy. the two leader did say not meet leading some to think iran snubbed the white house. >> 22% in the new cbs poll expect relations so improve. on the president's handling with the relations over iran more disapprove. 44% to 39%. margaret is with us. good morning. >> good morning to you charlie and norah. the white house sees the best chance of diplomatic opening
7:07 am
with iran in years. the obama administration will make nuclear negotiations a prime focus of next years in office. >> president barack obama acknowledged iranian president rouhani's recent pledge his country does not want to build a nuclear bomb but says u.s. wants concrete proof. >> i do believe if we can resolve the issue of the nuclear program, that can serve as a major step down a long road towards a relationship based on mutual interests and respect. >> president rouhani said he listened carefully to president barack obama 's speech and offered to immediately resort to talks about the nuclear program. >>. >>translator: iran seeks constructive engagement with other countries based on common respect and mutual interest and does not wish to increase
7:08 am
tensions with united states. >> president rouhani lashed out about sanctions. that pressure may be the real reason iran is reaching out. they want them lifted. there were rumors the two might shake hands at is this lunch raising expectations of the highest level meeting since president carter met the iran leader in 1977. it didn't happen. the white house offered to have the two meet for a few minutes. iranians declined. a senior member of the obama administration said a brief encounter was too complicated with iranians to deal with at this point. late tuesday, president rouhani had this message to americans in an interview. >> i bring peace and friendship from iranians to americans.
7:09 am
>> president barack obama told john kerry to take diplomatic lead on the negotiations. tomorrow the secretary of state will meet iranian counter parts, the highest level negotiation between u.s. and iran about the country's anuclear program. as you can imagine, there's skeptics on capitol hill and israel that say proceed cautiously. >> does the administration believe this is the beginning? >> in the words of an official they believe this is the best chance in years when you look at what came before rouhani. they're skeptical. they know who runs the country. >> the white house clearly left over the door for some sort of meeting at least a hand shake, chance encounter if you will that was going to be set up between president barack obama and the iranian president. was president barack obama snubbed? >> well the white house gestures towards domestic issues back in iran. rouhani is elected president and
7:10 am
doesn't run the president. he can't do anything without permission on the moment the way the president of the united states could. it's also the shaking hands with the united states present is difficult. we'll see what happens thursday. >> thank you. with us from capitol hill, bob corker the out spoken voice on the president's foreign policy and budget. good morning. >> good morning charlie. >> how do you see this event in the united nations in which there was a snub or a failure to shake a hand and to move to perhaps a fascinating photo opp? >> charlie, it's hard to say. you and i may have had this kind of situation. i know norah has where you had a suitor overly aggressive. who knows what happens. i can tell you that there's no
7:11 am
question that there wouldn't be an opportunity to even discuss diplomacy had we not enact in a bipartisan way sanctions on iran. we've had two rounds that had an impact. that's one of the reasons rouhani was elected. hopefully we can build off gains created through sanction that are act. ing -- are affecting the country in a big way. >> you believe there's real opportunity and we have to take him seriously in sense to see what they're prepared to do? >> charlie, i think you always have to hope diplomacy is going to work. at the same time you don't turn off sanctions we have in place. leave the pressure there. look, you know i do think we sent mixed signals into the region recently. i don't know how seriously people are taking these things right now.
7:12 am
look, i think again we need to continue to solve this diplomatically. obviously the iranian ownership of nuclear weapons is unacceptable. we need to use every resource we have. we'll see if there's opportunity here. while his tone is different than we've had in the past his actions have been similar in the past to what we've seen. that is a continued building towards them having nuclear weapons. i think we need to use every resource we have. sanctions right now are our best asset to hopefully continue down this path. >> i want to turn now you to what's happening in the u.s. senate and what's happening within your own party. one of your colleagues, senator cruz, pulled an all nighter. it's not a filibuster. the fate of this is already already decided. are you you concerned about what your fellow senator is doing could hurt your party's chances of taking back the u.s. senate?
7:13 am
it depends on the outcome. all of us are unified and hoping that obamacare will be delayed, defunded, that we can do something relative to the individual mandate and do something relative to the medical device tax. the tactics are deployed. >> is senator cruz's speech going to do anything to help delay that for a year which is what you're pushing for? >> we still have time. watching washington for all time you have nothing typically happens until the last minute. we'll see. i think the house is already as we know looking at sending something back that's a little different than a pure defunding. a delay on the mandate maybe dealing with ops. professional members and staff are dealt with differently than the rest of the country.
7:14 am
i think there are numbers of things we might accomplish over the last week as long as we don't cause this to go beyond the time of government needing to be funded. >> senator, no one doubts senator cruz's opposition to obamacare and desire to defund it. some people are saying this is about personal ambition and being seen fighting for this because it serves his own presidential ambitions. >> you know i think it's best for all of us. people are here for different motivations. to try to ascertain what somebody's individual motivation is is probably not a good thing for me to do. i came here to try to help create our country move ahead to put in place good public policy. hopefully over the course of the next several days we'll have the opportunity. thank y'all so much. >> thank you senator. kenya begins the mourning
7:15 am
period for victims of the nairobi mall siege. terrorists killed 67 people over four days. they claim many more are trapped in the rubble. security forces are searching for more victims this morning. charlie is at the scene in nairobi. good morning. >> reporter: there's a sense of relief now that the siege is m coming to an end. there's also a sense of shock. the fate of the hostages and horrors that took place inside the mall. >> flags are flying at half mass today as kenya begins three days of mourning for the victims of the massacre at west gate mall. details emerge about the final assault against the militants. what is clear this morning, none of the hostages made it out alive. this video showed actions that braved the assault and tried to
7:16 am
prevent from becoming captive. authority apparently tried to negotiate. the al qaeda linkedists didn't respond. mill stants started executeing hostages and tossing them off the roof. in announcing the siege was over, the president said kenya staired down evil and triumphed. >> we have shamed and defeated our attackers. that part of our task has been completed while our multiagency security team. >> reporter: he said three floors in the mall collapsed and several bodies were buried beneath the rubble including terrorists and hostages. the sheer amount of fire power used in the four day siege have led kenyan investigators to chase leads. some attackers rented a shop in the mall the last three months sneaking in and stocking up on
7:17 am
weapons and ammunition. kenya's president said intelligence reports suggested two or three americans may have been among the attackers. he has ordered examinations to determine the identities. >> reporter: 11 suspects arrested, five gunmen shot in the mall. presumably the rest were killed. the death toll is 61 and likely to double over the next few days as they're able to retrieve more bodies from the ball. >> charlie d'gata thanks. strong shakes this morning after the e magnitude 7.7. the death toll jumped to 271 this morning. hundreds are hurt thousands are homeless. communication is spotty. take a look at the true power of this quake. pakistan officials say it formed a island off the country's

7:35 am
together since leaving office in 2001. but the three of us held an improm impromptu session yesterday talking about energy issues and climate change. >> where are we going to sit? >> why don't you sit in the middle. i still remember the v.p. gig. >> all right. so how did this happen? you were just backstage and say hello? >> i didn't think al was going to come. them he had to come to new york and he comes by. then he had this interview with you and then we started talking about climate change and this u.n. report that's coming up in a if days. >> it took you, charlie, to get us to sit down jointly. >> i'll take that credit if you'll give it to me. >> he's a better politician than i am. we do talk a lot. >> about everything. >> mm-hmm. but especially about all this energy business. first of all, when i can't
7:36 am
figure out what's going on, i call him and he explains it to me. >> i try. i understand. >> and then i just kind of go around trying to figure out how to put together probablies that will work. but it's a fascinating issue. you know i still believe that we're going to do the right thing before calamity hits the earth, but we're pushing it. >> when people feel and understand these extreme weather events they're way more common and way more severe than they used to be. and even people who don't want to get into a discussion about global warming are looking and noticing and saying hey, we've got to do something about this. >> what's interesting about this, you and i would both like to sit there with these two guys and talk about politics talk about life after the presidency and the respected ways and directions their career has taken. this is the first time al gore has said to me they sat on the
7:37 am
same stage in ten years. >> incredible. as we know there was a lot of tension when they left the office and al gore lost. >> he said the president didn't do much. >> no doubt. it was extraordinary to see them. how about al gore he looks like he lost a lot of weight. >> he looks good. and he's funny, what he said there. all the things they could talk about. this was specifically to the environment. still don't know why the president wanted to come out. but he did. i had one minute's notice to say the president would like to come out. all the questions you want to ask, you think, god, maybe another time. >> maybe another session. they were talking climate change yesterday and now we're learning that scientists and researchers are looking at how to change the weather on purpose. that's right. laser, now could one day manipulate rain and lightning. cbs contributor michio kaku is a
7:38 am
professor. nice to see you. extraordinary seeing bill clinton and al gore. >> it was. >> lasers really to change the weather? >> that's right. as mark twain famously said everyone complains about the weather but no one does anything about it. well instead of doing a rain darngs we physicists are fire ging lasers into the sky to actually bring down lightning bolts. >> but this is experimental. >> it's experimental, however, in the laboratory so far it works. when you have water vapor and dust particles or ice crystals you can precipitate rain. it condenses around the seeds. these seeds can also be created by laser beams. you rip apart electronicslek ee electrons.
7:39 am
>> this fascinates me because in part i remember reading stories that china used this during the olympics, that ussr used it after chernobyl to create rain clouds. do those really work then? they have some capabilities now? inconclusive. even in the '60s they used it to bring down monsoons during the vietnam war to wash out the vietnam vietnam cong. >> alleged to. >> lajed to. nothing con cluesive. this time we're bringing in the laws of physics rather than waving our hands and whispering mum beau jumbo. in the laboratory sure enough they precipitate rain out of water vapor. sure enough you can bring electricity down the beam. >> what does it mean for drought areas that need to have rain for crops and if they don't have them, the consequences are
7:40 am
famine? >> the bad news is if it's a clear blue sky, it's not going to do anything at all. it already takes water vapor in the air and condenses it. however, for floods for agriculture, for farmers, for people planning wedding parties, football game you name it. outdoor events and agriculture and flooding and eve hurricanes all of them could be subject to weather modification. >> incredibly interesting. professor michio kaku. thank you so much. and some are calling new burger king french fridays across america people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®.
7:41 am
for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar, but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® is different than pills. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once-a-day, any time, and comes in a pen. and the needle is thin. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: swelling of face, lips tongue, or throat, fainting
7:42 am
or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza® including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza®. it's covered by most health plans. started using bb cream about a year ago. it's great because it hydrates it's a foundation,
7:43 am
it's a concealer it's a primer, it has sunscreen... i love it. and it's really quick. that is very helpful, for me.
7:44 am
premier fighter jets f-16 being
7:45 am
flown by remote control. it does all of the moo nuvs. they can train against them and even shoot them down. >> i love f-16s. did i tell you i've been in one? >> no. >> i went seven gs once. it's the ride of my life. all right. we told you burger king's answer to fattening french fries. they are launching satisfries. it could be a sign the nation's fast food chains are scrambling to answer demanding for healthier alternatives. michael moss is an investigator of "new york times" and also the author of "salt, sugar fat," how the food giants hook us. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> this is getting a lot of attention. this is a smart business move by burger king, right? >> absolutely. although the name itself i don't
7:46 am
know if i'm going to be standing in line asking for that. it is a smart move in that they're practicing the fine art of line extension, coming out with a new product. good for their bottom line maybe. questionable what it's going to do for our waistlines. >> because you think even though there's a reduction of 30% of the fat they're still quite unhealthy? >> the problem is health officials will tell you it may give you permission to overeat. you drink diet soda and you think it acts as a profill lack it is against cal roys and you get an extra large muffin. it's not a taste. it's a sensation, that warm gooey toasted cheese sandwich sensation goes right to the pleasure sensation. >> is that why we like bacon?
7:47 am

8:01 am
follow the house and cut off funds for president obama's health care law. >> i will confess as we sit here i'm a little bit tired. >> the white house says it sees the best chance for a diplomatic opening with iran in years, and the obama administration will make nuclear negotiations a prime focus. >> there's a sense of leaf here in nairobi but they're also in a state of shock as they're coming to terms with the events that unfolded over the past four days. team usa roars back to life at the america's cup. >> we are all even. it will be winner take all. >> we physicists truly want lasers into the sky to actually precipitate rain clouds. this is potentially a game changer. >> where are you going to sit? >> wherever you like. >> why don't you sit in the middle? i still remember the vp gig. >> the united nations in which there was a snub or a failure to shake a hand. >> hard to say. you and i may have had this kind of situation. i know norah has where you've

8:06 am
and we've got an aging population that's driving less and turning over the car fleet faster than ever. >> i think that's a fabulous and very interesting story that u.s. oil production is up so much about how much we're producing our own energy. are we becoming less dependent? >> we are becoming less dependent. in a way you can call ben bernanke the accidental architect on this. low interest rates have kept oil prices relatively high so there's a lot of exploration production. you can guarantee a high price five years from now. on the other hand, low interest rates are leading to more people buying vehicles. vehicle sales are as high as they've been in a generation. the new cars are getting 25 miles to the gallon even though you watch nfl games and you can see the trucks. >> how low can it go? >> i think we'll go lower than last year which was $3.21 for the year. an awful lot of states will be able to buy less than $3.
8:07 am
if you use a gas buddy app you can buy it for less than $3 in a dozen states right now. if you aggressively look you can do about 25 cents better. >> go ahead, go ahead. >> over the long run natural gas will be a huge contributor to all this? >> natural gas is a huge contributor to the refining renaissance. refineries use natural gas and our price is one-third or one-fourth the price across the globe. that's one of the reasons why we can manufacture products like gasoline and diesel much cheaper than everybody else. >> but they can be used for other sources and therefore have an impact? >> we'll probably see natural gas used for a lot of long haul trucks in the next decade. >> amazon ceo jeff bezos is introducing a new kindle tablet. it is three times faster than

in our morning rounds two important studies about bone health. one looks at vitamin d and the other looks an bone scans. some 9 million have osteobrother sis and others are affected. let's start with that old
8:17 am
vitamin d. >> vitamin d is just the new black. it's in the news every single day for something, but today this study looked specifically at whether very high dose of vitamin d supplements could prevent osteoporosis, one in particular, bone turnover or bone destruction. what they found is vitamin d supplements taken alone didn't help at auchlt taken with calcium helped and calcium alone helped but taken alone it does not strengthen the bones. >> is vitamin d the new miracle vitamin? >> it's hard to argue that because it's been linked to everything else, but in this context, it's not the only answer. along with calcium it can help our bones. >> where do you get in natural foods. >> it's found in fortified milk eggs, fish everywhere.
8:18 am
calcium too. in my practice i recommend women take a supplement because in reality we don't always get all we need from our diet. we should, but days happen when we just don't. >> yeah. you describe it as a new black and black goes with everything. can there be too much of a good thing taking vitamin d? >> yes, there absolutely can. very high dose vitamin d are recommended against. and calcium, too, has been linked to an increase in heart attacks. you have to go over with your doctor about what your specific needs are. >> is there something we should be taking every day? should we be taking it every day? sniet really depends on the individual. i can't say yes or no. i personally take a vitamin d and calcium every day and a fish oil, but it depends on the person. if you eat very well you absolutely don't need a supplement. nobody needs a supplement if
8:19 am
you're eating well. >> okay. dr. holly phillips you're supposed to tell us about the frequency of bone scans. >> you don't need to take scans as frequently as you thought. most are having them between two and four years. less is more. before you go for your routine, make sure you really need it. >> thank you. parents are getting new advice this morning. it could be okay to argue in front of your kids but certain kind of arguing. that's ahead. tomorrow a big day. former first lady laura bush will be here. she'll tell us about life after washington along with women forrk for education and women's rights. that's tomorrow on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: cbs "morning rounds" sponsored by coffee-mate. coffee's perfect mate.

8:33 am
good morning do you both. andrea we're going to start with you because this goes against everything that most of us have been told. how do arguments help? >> basically every person is going to have disagreements in their life and what child psychologists i talked to said is that you know it's better to be able to model constructive conflict. that's a real gift you can take to your kids. >> isn't it hard to expect rational behavior in an irrational moment. sometimes you're so amped up it's hard to be rational. >> absolutely. they say because it's so difficult you want to keep it behind closed doors. but the key is really -- okay if you're going to argue, how can you do it in a healthy way that does sort of give these skills but doesn't traumatize them because there's our research that says toxic arguments can be very damaging and lead to anxiety, depression
8:34 am
and behavior problems. >> in fact doctor the research is very clear about that. there's effects on children's brains, even infants. you can see changes in their brain. >> even while they're sleeping. >> yes. >> so the thing that's really important is that high conflict arguments are bad for kids. you don't want your kids to see you're not on a united front. even kids are easy. moms easy, i'm going to ask that. dad's hard. they don't want that. they want parents to be bonded. the problem with fighting constructively is it can get hot very quickly so some of the expert suggested a five-minute rule or if you get to the five on a ten scale, that's bad. i have to tell you, when i fought wi my -- when i still fight with my wife i don't know when i'm at five. >> maybe you're at five and
8:35 am
she's at seven. >> it's a bad idea, especially when there's an audience. the other thing you have to know is if your kids are there, very often if there's boys in the room, it isescalates and that's bad for them and you. >> the other thing i like about your piece, andrea it's not good to fight in front of your kid bus if you can have a healthy disagreement with a positive outcome that that is a foundation for life and i've seen this in my kids' school, conflict among kids. that is undervalued. >> the thing is i talked to several parents that because of the way their own parents fought or didn't fight, some who never fought at all, they felt twlal ill-equipped and found them very conflict aversed and not been able to handle conflicts so they vowed to do things differently with their children, and that means try to fight in a healthy way. >> i think the teachable moment might be that if parents know it's getting too uncomfortable
8:36 am
either parent can call for a time-out. and that's a good thought. we'll discuss this later or get back to it. the other thing is what is the reaction your kid has. if he starts to cry, looks scared, more irritable or seems to be really becoming anxious, that's the signal, the red flag let's stop this discussion right now and we'll come back to it wchl'll tell you your decision afterward. >> it was interesting for me. obviously if your child is crying that's a no-brainer but other sorts of cues are a little bit more subtle. the kid freezes or doesn't move for a few minutes or thufrps overed on they try to assert themselves in the argument try to mediate it or just disbehave themselves to try to divert the attention away. >> there's a fundamental point here that it's important to be able to argue and differ over issues because there's always conflict in life among everyone.
8:37 am
without insults and just -- >> to do it with respect. >> to do it with respect in a genuine way. >> and to remember they're always listening. i was surprised when you said kids can hear you even when they're sleeping. kids like they're not listening and they're colorinut they're really paying attention that that's how this article came to be. i had a 4 1/2-year-old daughter and i was grabbling with this in my own marriage and my husband and i have tried to remove ourselves from -- we were arguing about something in the kitchen. it wasn't getting very heated but my daughter was playing with her dolls in another room and after it was all over she said daddy, when mommy said she didn't do something, she didn't do something. we looked at each other like, oh, my gosh i didn't know she heard any of this. >> we'd love to have you back and do the flip side of this and the importance of showing affection toward one another in front of your children.
